Our Story

Experience the grand exterior of 17 stories of Wisconsin limestone and Alabama black granite. Inside past the bas-relief brass elevator doors and the ornate iron grates beyond the escalator, the building welcomes you to its true brilliance. The marble walls and floors echo with the history of Miami’s elite as you enter the ballrooms. Turn your gaze upward at the intricately hand-painted cypress ceilings. The grandeur of this extraordinary location makes it the perfect venue for your special event.

Historic of Splendor

A historic and breathtaking landmark in Miami for over three quarters of a century, the Alfred I. duPont Building reflects the culture and designs of past eras that paves the way for future generations. The Art Deco style of the late 1920s to 1930s is prevalent throughout, from the granite and limestone aesthetics of the exterior to the delicately painted cypress ceiling and marble paneling of the interior. Step into the duPont building, and you walk in the footsteps of Florida’s historical elites into a wonderfully preserved and grandiose piece of history.

Un salón icónico en la ciudad de Miami se vistió de gala para celebrar la unión de Carol y JP. El The Historic ALFRED I. DUPONT BUILDING fue el escenario que tuvimos para decorar esta preciosa boda. El reto era grande… pero no le tememos a nada. Con toques de color lila/morado, hicimos que las flores fueran protagonistas en cada mesa. Las velas aportaron un ambiente romántico y acogedor. Disfrutamos enormemente esta boda, tanto que hasta nos queríamos quedar en la fiesta 😅 Es siempre una bendición por hacer los sueños realidad. #eventdesing #eventinspiration #eventdesigner #floraldesign #floraldesigner #miamiweddings #weddingsmiami #bodasmiami #laclau

To expand the capacity for our closing ceremony, we decided to change the venue, and we found the perfect place: the iconic art deco The Historic ALFRED I. DUPONT BUILDING in Downtown Miami!

Thank you to the @dupontbuilding team for supporting LAFS as a Sponsor and helping us make our dream night happen!
"Pero sobre todo mucho mucho mucho amor." 🌌💛 In 2020, we had to postpone our closing night party which we intended as a celebration of Walter Mercado, with Kareem Tabsch and Cristina Costantini’s film MUCHO MUCHO AMOR: THE LEGEND OF WALTER MERCADO. So... we're ringing in a new festival by dedicating our 2022 Opening Night Party to Walter Mercado and finally having the party for this legendary Miami resident!

DUPONT BUILDING on Friday, March 4th at this epic event you'll talk about for the next 9 days. 🎊 Indulge in delicacies from Shake Shack, Divieto Ristorante , Bulla Gastrobar, and Pisco y Nazca Ceviche Gastrobar and pair it with our fan-favorite beer, Estrella Damm! Sip on delicious cocktail offerings from E11EVEN Vodka, Miami Club Rum (Miami Club Spirits), and Volley Tequila Seltzer , or try a mocktail from our new friends at GHIA and Olipop Soda.
